Show and Tell: Pink
November 30, 2008
Yesterday while tidying up I found the Vogue magazine that I had been reading in the hospital before my hysteroscopy. When I picked the magazine up, I found some photos tucked inside that I’d never seen before.
Can you guess what they are?
Did you guess?
No? I’ll give you a second to think about it…
They are photos of my uterus — from the inside! Something I never ever expected to accidentally find lying around the house. Never ever ever.
I knew that Dr. Full Steam Ahead showed the photos to DH, but I didn’t know (since I was unconscious at the time, and DH never mentioned it) that he gave us a copy to take home. And therefore I also didn’t know that DH tucked the pictures into Vogue. Surprise! No, that’s not a Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress, it’s your empty womb!
DH was 100% right when he described the photos simply as pink.
Randomly discovering photos of your uterus… one of those moments that only infertility can deliver.
If you’d like to see what else people have brought for Show and Tell this week, head over to Miss Lollipop’s circle time. It’s a pretty safe bet that no one else brought a uterus. If someone else also has internal photos of their reproductive organs, I would be so embarrassed! Embarassed at the duplication, not at showing the world pictures of my hoo-hah. That is no problem, obviously.
